You may be interested in knowing about a new query language that I have been involved in designing. Quilt is an XML query language designed for queries on heterogeneous data sources, and drawing from the design of XQL, XML-QL, SQL, and OQL. The authors included me, Don Chamberlin (one of the two authors of SQL), and Dana Florescu (well known in the object database community, and one of the authors of XML-QL).
The two papers to look at are found here:
This has no official status in the XML Query WG. The authors are all members of that WG (and one was an editor of both the Requirements WD and the Data Model WD), and we designed the language to meet the requirements of the Query WG. Since the Query WG is not yet working on concrete query languages, it is too early to say how it will respond to this proposal.
